Life under COVID-19 is starting to bite. Online, we share memes and videos all day long (and half the night too – I am turning into an insomniac). We are turning to nervous eating. Comfort food continually pops up on my Twitter timeline, whether it’s hominy porridge or just a series of snacks at odd intervals throughout the day. Something like:
One of my current favorite videos is a group of young men on a split screen, each in their own abode, playing the disco classic “Staying Alive” with adjusted lyrics: “Staying Inside.”We have a lovely view of the bass player’s tapping, shoeless foot and his dog, enjoying a bone. The opening line is: “You can tell by the way I wash my hands…”
Staying Inside. I was inspired by one tweet of a lovely (but run-down) home in Kashmir – a beautiful place where life is uncertain and volatile, even without COVID-19. Here’s a photo gallery of a few more homes, where we now stay put, whether we like it or not (and for many of us, it is mandatory)… They are all my photos, and mostly taken in Jamaica.
